I think I was channeling Britney Spears (circa 1998) when I put this outfit together. On its own, this trapeze dress is short, shapeless and a bit plain (except for the pockets – I can’t resist a dress with pockets). But since I’m a clothing hoarder, I always try to transform the items that I don’t wear often rather than giving them away (which I should maybe/probably/definitely start doing). Adding a short-sleeved oxford shirt in a summery fabric gave this dress a new life (or, according to my boyfriend, made it completely hideous). I left the last two buttons undone and knotted it up, just like an extra in the “Hit Me Baby One More Time” music video. I think the heeled sandals from Zara add a little elegance to the pseudo-schoolgirl look. Would you ever wear this?
